A seminal alternative rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA; one of the driving forces behind the 1980's alternative rock scene who helped pave the way for grunge bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
Fronted by Paul Westerberg, the band formed in 1979 and broke up in 1991. The original members were Paul Westerberg (vocals/guitar), Bob Stinson (guitar), Tommy Stinson (bass) and Chris Mars (drum). In 1985, after the release of their fourth album, "Tim" (widely considered their best album), Bob Stinson was kicked out of the band and replaced by Minneapolis guitarist Slim Dunlap.
They were also referred to jokingly as "the 'Mats", from "the Placemats", which was what a detractor joked their name was.
Joe: "The Replacements are the best band EVER!"
Lucas: "Hahaha, isn't that a movie?"
Joe: *Slaps Lucas*
Lucas: "Ow! What was that for?"
Joe: "You're an asshole. And that movie sucks ass!"
Another term for a Bounce-blower, which is a simple device used for masking the smell of marijuana. Essentially, it is a bare toilet-paper roll with a laundry sheet held over one end with an elastic and other laundry sheets stuffed inside. To use, one simply takes a hit (off a joint, pipe, bong, etc.) and then blows the smoke into the end without the sheet over it.
Another name for a Bounce blower, which is an instrument used to cover up the smell of marijuana while smoking. A happy hoot (HH) is primarily a spent cardboard tube from a roll of toilet paper with sheets of Bounce stuffed inside and another placed over the end (usually held on with an elastic). The smoker blows into the end without the covering, and the smoke comes out smelling less like pot and more like laundry.
Ollie: "I don't want it to stink in her after we sesh, my dad is coming home soon."
Joe: "Don't you have a happy hoot?"
Happy Hoot Man: "Never fear! The happy hoot is here!"
